Foles gives Eagles lift they need just in time to beat Bears

Philadelphia Eagles fans are flooding a Venmo account allegedly belonging to Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey - or someone with the same name - after Parkey's missed 43-yard field goal attempt handed the Eagles a win during the National Football League playoff game on Sunday night. They had an incredible season.

Meticulous review of the Chicago Bears' season-ending missed field goal shows that Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Treyvon Hester tipped the ball just enough off the line of scrimmage to help push it offline.

The season is now over for the Bears, but the defending champion Eagles, who scraped into the playoffs just a week ago, march on as they bid to retain their title.

Veteran guard Kyle Long also consoled Parkey and said he reminded him the loss was a team effort, not on one player.

Lynch played free safety for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1993 until 2003 and then for the Denver Broncos from 2004 until 2007. The 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame class will be announced on February 2, the day before Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

The veteran kicker had a trying first season in Chicago after signing a four-year deal in free agency that included $9 million in guaranteed money. He made 42 of 45 extra points.

The Bears had a chance to go up 18-16 with 10 seconds remaining when Parkey stepped on the field for a 43-yard field goal attempt. But he hit uprights on six of his misses.

Greg Bishop drops a thorough piece for SI, examining Foles' journey over the past 11 months, since Foles led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl win, earning Super Bowl MVP honors in the process. And Fangio, 60, is in the running for the opening in Denver. So does cornerback Bryce Callahan, who broke his left foot against the Rams on December 9 and missed the rest of the season. The Bears kicker played for Philadelphia from 2014-15. "That would be really cool".
